Don't you wish sometimes that people would mind their own business. I would wait until I talked to social services before I did something they can hold against you. Here they have to tell you what the complaints are. I don't believe that you would drag her down the street by her hair, no matter what she did. It kind of gets me because you begged for help with her, and it took them forever, but now they want to go overboard. As long as she's safe with your mum, I'd relax and try to get to the social worker and find out what is going on.
Nattygksmonkey, do you live in the US or ? Laws, practices and procedures vary so much from one place to the next. In some places the social workers are not allowed BY LAW to tell you anything about any allegations. Yes, it is stressful, but they usually can give you some idea about when the "investigation" is expected to be completed and a decision reached. Since depression & medication is so VERY common they can hardly judge you just on that, and a single eyewitness opinion is notoriously not to be trusted! Good luck to you and try to be calm and patient. Your daughter may drive your mum nuts, and she'll be glad to let her come home - wouldn't be the first time, would it?
